NATIONAL CALL-IN DAY TO SPEAK UP FOR EDUCATION AND KIDS

WEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 2010

Wednesday, May 26, 2010 is the start of the National Speak Up for Education & Kids Campaign.  It begins with a National Call-in Day.

TAKE ACTION:

   * On Wednesday May 26th, call 1-866-608-6355 to contact your Representative in Congress.

   * You will hear talking points and will be connected to the United States Capitol Switchboard – ask for your House Member.

   * Tell your Representative to protect the future of our children by supporting funding to save education jobs in the emergency funding bill.

   * With 300,000 education layoffs expected, our students are the ones who will suffer – in overcrowded classrooms, with less time in school, and without the teachers and school staff needed to give them individual attention and help.

   * Forward this call-in day information to five friends. Ask them to call Congress on May 26th and to forward this e-mail to five more friends.

Other Actions You Can Take to Speak Up for Education And Kids:

*  E-mail your Members of Congress to support funding to save education jobs in the emergency supplemental appropriations bill.

*  Become a “fan” of Speak up for Education and Kids (http://www.facebook.com/speakupforkids) on Facebook — a community of educators and concerned citizens – now more than 12,000 strong – who believe our nation has a responsibility to invest in education and avoid the short-sighted cuts that could deprive our students of the bright futures they deserve.

*  Visit Education Votes (www.educationvotes.nea.org) to find out how you can make sure your voice is heard on the education issues that matter the most.

Congress can’t ignore a strong message from all across the nation.  Make your voice heard!

Participate in the National Call-In Day and speak up for education and kids!
